Dutch corporate up-skilling provider Lepaya has acquired Swiss leadership training provider Krauthammer in a deal which will see Lepaya establishe itself as the premier up-skilling and transformation company catering to the needs of large-scale corporate entities through senior management training.
Lepaya has been growing through acquisitions like AI technology companies VCoach (now Lepaya AI-Coach), Smartenup and recent acquisition SpeakFirst. Lepaya says its technology has proven that by combining VR with facilitated learning, learning transfer goes up by 20% - the Krauthammer acquisition is a logical next step in its mission to remain at the forefront of the training industry.
“I'm really excited for Krauthammer and Lepaya to join forces,” says Frans van Kreuningen, CEO of Krauthammer. “By combining Krauthammer's long-standing training quality, with delivery at scale across Lepaya’s platform plus AI and VR-powered learning technology, we will be able to upskill and transform companies at every level of the organisation.”
"The acquisition of Krauthammer is a major step forward for Lepaya - making Lepaya the leading capability platform that boosts productivity and retention of workforces of world’s largest organisations," says René Janssen, co-CEO of Lepaya. “In just our 5th year of existence, we will touch the lives of more than 250.000 employees, while aiming to eventually help the full global workforce of 3.3 billion.”
